Dayton police arrest 2, recover gun after lengthy foot chase

UPDATE @ 6:04 p.m.: A foot chase through several yards ended with Dayton police arresting two 18-year-old males on suspicion of several possible charges, including robbery.

Sgt. Joseph Setty said the chase was on when one of the males, who matched the description of a suspect in a recent robbery in the 1000 block of Watervliet Avenue, was spotted in that same area of town and ran. The second male with the first also took off running.

A “signal 99” — officer needing assistance — was dispatched when officers sent to the area lost radio contact with one of the officers who was chasing the two males, Setty said. That officer was not injured.

The chase continued through several yards and covered eight to nine blocks before the males were apprehended in a yard in the 1000 block of Bellaire Avenue.

Setty said police also recovered a handgun that was in a book bag the first male threw down as he was running from officers.

Both males have been taken to the Montgomery County Jail, where they will be detained pending the filing of charges.

Setty said charges could include robbery, fleeing and eluding, obstruction, resisting arrest and firearm possession. Whether any charges are pursued will be determined by the investigation of the chase and recent robbery.

UPDATE @ 4 p.m.

A Montgomery County deputy tells us the suspect who was being pursued has been caught.

The suspect was taken into custody by Dayton police and was transported to the safety building.

We continue to work on gathering more information.
